Motorbikes and 4x4 vehicles have been temporarily banned from parts of the Ridgeway National Trail, one of the oldest roads in Britain.

The temporary order has been imposed by a number of district councils during winter months in an attempt to protect the ancient chalk ridge road, which was used by prehistoric man.

A council spokeswoman said "I am pleased to say that the condition of the Ridgeway is improving. However, we need to protect the most vulnerable sections from unacceptable levels of damage over the winter."
